soil sensor in smart agriculture
The emergence of various intelligent soil sensor makes modern agriculture more efficient and accurate.
Various soil sensor provide scientific data basis for agricultural planting production.
What are the specific parameters that need to be monitored? What does it do?
Soil moisture sensor:
Soil moisture sensor, also known as soil moisture sensor, is composed of stainless steel probe and waterproof probe.
It can be buried in the soil and dam for a long time. It can be used for fixed point monitoring and online measurement of soil moisture in surface and deep soil.
Soil temperature sensor:
Soil temperature sensor can monitor the temperature of soil, air and water. Appropriate soil temperature is conducive to the growth of plants, while low or high temperature is not conducive to the growth of plants.
The seeds of crops must germinate within a suitable range of soil temperature. Within a certain range of temperature, the higher the soil temperature, the faster the growth and development of crops.
Different plants have different temperature requirements. By monitoring the soil temperature, the soil temperature is kept in the suitable range of crop growth temperature to ensure the increase of crop yield and income.
Soil PH monitoring:
The growth of all kinds of plants have their own suitable soil acidity and alkalinity. Most plants in the PH is too high or too low are difficult to grow normally.
Some diseases can only occur within a certain PH range, such as cataplexy, which tends to occur easily in alkaline and neutral soils.
Suitable acidity and alkalinity of soil are beneficial to the growth of agricultural products and the reduction of pests and diseases.
Monitoring of soil nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium:
Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium play an important role in the growth and development of crops.
They are the components of many important organic compounds in crops, or affect the growth and metabolism of crops in the form of enzyme activators.
Any physiological and biochemical process in crops cannot be completed by a single element. Each element has its own physiological function and interaction, and jointly shoulder various metabolic functions to ensure the normal growth of crops.
Soil EC sensor:
At present, soil EC value is mainly measured by digital display soil EC meter.
Its principle uses the specified special metal material as a sensor to realize the rapid determination of EC value of soil, etc.
Soil sensors in monitoring crop irrigation, soil air changes, as well as large areas of surface monitoring, soil moisture, soil nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium content and pH value of data.
Soil sensing technology is playing an increasingly important role in the development of precision agriculture, so as to achieve scientific monitoring and rational planting.
